MONTREAL, QUEBEC -- (Marketwired) -- 06/02/14 -- Peak Positioning Technologies Inc. (TSX VENTURE: PKK)(PINK SHEETS: PKKFF) ("Peak" or the "Company") today announced that following the filing of the necessary documents related to its planned acquisition of the assets associated with the Quickable marketplace, and the subsequent review of these documents by the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV"), it has received conditional approval from the TSXV to close on the acquisition.
The conditions to obtain final acceptance of the acquisition from the TSXV are to provide the TSXV with confirmation that the assets in questions have been transferred to Peak, and to pay the applicable fees related to the review of the transaction to the TSXV.
Memorandum of Understanding to Bring Quickable to China
Peak also announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Peak Positioning Corporation ("Peak Corp."), has signed a memorandum of understanding with LongKey Software Technology Ltd. ("LongKey Soft"), the Company's Chinese partner's operating subsidiary, to grant LongKey Soft commercialization rights, based on a revenue sharing model, of the Quickable assets in China immediately following the closing of the asset acquisition transaction by Peak.
Following the closing of the transaction and once commercialization rights to Quickable have been formally granted to LongKey Soft, Peak Corp and LongKey Soft will collaborate to present Quickable to a specific LongKey Soft Chinese banking partner as a solution to facilitate mobile e-Commerce transactions between the bank's clients.
"The discussions about entering into this MOU with LongKey Soft began back in April, shortly following our decision to acquire Quickable", commented Johnson Joseph, President and CEO of Peak. "We wanted to ensure that the Quickable acquisition process had reached a certain threshold before signing off on the MOU with LongKey Soft. Now that we've received the Exchange's green light to close on the acquisition, which essentially now puts the closing entirely in our hands, we feel comfortable with taking this first significant step to bring Quickable to China", concluded Mr. Joseph.
